With Grindelwald rising, Newt Scamander and friends try to stop a war between magicals and muggles. Plot-tastic third instalment of the inconsistent Harry Potterverse prequel series. More fan service this time around, plus a focus on getting the series wrapped up in case the projected Parts 4 and 5 disapparate. Zippy, but for diehards only really.
A team-building weekend goes awry when colleagues are trapped in a cave. Poor entry in the office politics horror-comedy sub-genre, with a decent cast struggling with under-powered scripting, direction, and lighting choices. There’s nice Gary Sinise and Britney Spears running gags, but that’s about it.
Awkward best friends decide to let go of their insecurities the night before their high school graduation. Splendid and funny reworking of well-trampled material; a coming-of-age / rite-of-passage / night-from-hell story done right, and both played and directed with a keen sense of the subgenres. Recommended.
